Deadly machines. Strange creatures. A sinister secret.

A crew of treasure hunters risking their hearts to uncover the truth.

But they’ll have to find the lost House of Matchsticks first …

So begins House of Matchsticks, a brand-new, unforgettable YA Fantasy series set in a world called Benemourne, where a mysterious ore powers a society rife with danger.

Follow Isaline, a girl who dreams of becoming a City Watchman in Benemourne’s capital, and Jack, a former treasure hunter with a dark and painful obsession, as they are dragged with the Collector into the beginnings of a deadly adventure.

Stolen memories. Poison-induced visions. A mission they might not survive.

The House of Matchsticks is calling …

Isaline is desperate to keep her identity a secret. In the space of one night, her future as a City Watch has crumbled before her eyes. And now she’s on a train across Benemourne with two complete strangers—dangerous treasure hunters that she can’t trust with her real name.

But she can’t outrun her lies forever. Jack Fael, a retired treasure hunter thrust back into the mystery that’s been haunting him for years, senses Isaline is keeping secrets. His obsession with the House of Matchsticks has been reignited, and when Jack receives a crucial message in the form of an Adrudian vision, he finds the discovery of his lost expedition tied to Isaline’s fate.

The Collector’s own destiny has been turned upside down. After witnessing the events at Casret Academy, his companion, Caladrius, seems unwilling to lead him anywhere but on Isaline’s trail. Shadowing a human goes against the Collector’s every intuition—and he’s beginning to fear he altered his course forever when he pushed that rowboat sixteen years ago.

In Night of Matchsticks, follow Isaline, Jack, and the Collector as they delve deeper into the hidden truths of their mechanical, Adrudian-lit world and grow closer to the underground expedition that will prove every secret comes with a price.

House of Matchsticks is a third person, multi-POV series with found family, slow-burn romance (straight and LGBTQ+), and a healthy dose of action/adventure. This is Part 2 in the series. Expect a cliffhanger.

There are monsters in the dark, but Josie has a magic flashlight.

When the sun goes down, Josie stays awake because she sees monsters in the dark. She sees big monsters and little monsters, fuzzy monsters and scaly monsters. There’s even a purple monster with big horns and long claws hiding in the kitchen! That one is the scariest thing in her house by far.

One evening, Josie’s dad gives her a magic flashlight, her very own Scary Snapper, that will turn any monster into something less scary. When she wakes up in the middle of the night and starts to feel scared, Josie ventures from her bedroom and into the dark hallway, her Scary Snapper in hand.

In Josie and the Scary Snapper, join Josie on a midnight adventure as she conquers her fear of the dark. With vibrant illustrations, an empowering story, and a twist you won’t see coming, Josie and the Scary Snapper is an excellent picture book choice for bedtimes everywhere.

If you enjoyed The Dark by Lemony Snicket and Jon Klassen, Orion and the Dark by Emma Yarlett, or Go Away, Big Green Monster! by Ed Emberly, Josie and the Scary Snapper is for you!

On the surface of the sea, a burning island beckons the Collector.

So begins House of Matchsticks, a brand-new, unforgettable YA Fantasy series set in a world called Benemourne, where a mysterious ore powers a society rife with danger.

Follow Isaline, a girl who dreams of becoming a City Watchman in Benemourne’s capital, and Jack, a former treasure hunter with a dark and painful obsession, as they are dragged with the Collector into the beginnings of a deadly adventure.

There are monsters in the dark, but Josie has a magic flashlight.

When the sun goes down, Josie stays awake because she sees monsters in the dark. She sees big monsters and little monsters, fuzzy monsters and scaly monsters. There’s even a purple monster with big horns and long claws hiding in the kitchen! That one is the scariest thing in her house by far.

One evening, Josie’s dad gives her a magic flashlight, her very own Scary Snapper, that will turn any monster into something less scary. When she wakes up in the middle of the night and starts to feel scared, Josie ventures from her bedroom and into the dark hallway, her Scary Snapper in hand.

In Josie and the Scary Snapper, join Josie on a midnight adventure as she conquers her fear of the dark. With vibrant illustrations, an empowering story, and a twist you won’t see coming, Josie and the Scary Snapper is an excellent picture book choice for bedtimes everywhere.

If you enjoyed The Dark by Lemony Snicket and Jon Klassen, Orion and the Dark by Emma Yarlett, or Go Away, Big Green Monster! by Ed Emberly, Josie and the Scary Snapper is for you!
